Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Dear ones, some of you reading this are discouraged because the people that you have reached out to help or poured your life into are either unresponsive, unthankful, or taking you for granted. That is one reason why our passage this morning is in the Bible. We tend to be forgetful, even as saints. Do you remember the people who blessed you yesterday? Cooked you a meal? Did your dirty laundry? Gave you a ride to the doctor’s office? Gave you an encouraging text? Sent you a card? Have you ever gotten an unsigned, unexpected gift in the mail? Truth be told, every one of us are the gracious recipients of the grace and goodness of God that is expressed to us through others.
Perhaps that is the reason why we are told to do whatever we do as unto The Lord (Colossians 3:23). Amazingly, The Lord Jesus acknowledges and appreciates the things that you do for others in His Name. Remarkable! Jesus said: “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me.” (Matthew25:35-40)
When you and I reach out to others in The Name of The Lord, He does not forget it. May God grant to writer and reader alike the grace to do whatever we do for others as being done unto Him. Selah
